By: Liza

Filipinos are patient, hopefuls and intelligent in nature. While most of the Filipinos did not earn degrees or are lacked in proper education due to poverty, they are still known for their perseverance and optimistic attitude. On the other hand, those who have the quality education are now soaring high in different fields not just in the country but in different parts of the world.

But not all Filipinos are given the equal opportunity. Now that the world is experiencing global recession, the number of unemployed population does not only comprise of Filipinos without proper education but also newly graduates, previously unemployed and those who have been laid off. While there are many available job orders, most job seekers do not fall on these categories.

In our digital age, job seekers are looking for other ways to find the job that fits their qualifications. Aside from searching in weekly classifieds, many job seekers are now looking for employment opportunities on the Internet. This is also the same thing with the employers. And because the Internet has a wide reach, all users who are looking for jobs have the chance to apply for their desired position located in other places in just one click.

The Internet has not only made the search for job easy and time efficient for both employees and employers, it has also widened the opportunities to find a more decent job offers from foreign companies as well. And with the other features of this technology, applicants do not also need to go to the company offices for interview. They can also exchange files and resumes without using a single paper and a drop of ink.

Another interesting use of the Internet is the opportunity to get a job at home or commonly known as "home based" or "telecommuting" jobs. This type of job is more common nowadays as many companies are hiring services from third world countries like the Philippines due to low wages and excellent skills. Many Filipinos would go for this kind of job as it allows them to maximize their time and be with their family more often.

Indeed, the breakthrough in technology has changed the way Filipinos look for job opportunities. The Internet has given them the fair chance to learn and explore other jobs opportunities that may interest them. All they need is a fast and reliable Internet connection.
